This post will only include reviews for the 2 products featured above, Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheets and Hydra-Clear, which I have been using alternately since receiving them for the past 2 weeks.
Wanna know what I feel on these products?
Read till the end of the post to find out!
For the sole purpose of this review, I will demonstrate the effectiveness of each product's removal power on these makeup items.
Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheets
What it claims:
- Throughly removes all traces of makeup including waterproof mascara without irritating or drying your skin.
- Minimises need for repeated wiping on eyelashes, eye area and face.
- Cleansing oil does not remain on skin so there is no greasy or sticky feeling after use.
- Contains moisturising agent that leaves skin soft and smooth, not tight.
-Alcohol-free 100% natural fibre sheets ideal for all skin types.
Using clean hand, gently wipe off makeup with makeup sheet. To remove waterproof mascara, place sheet on closed eyes for 5 to 6 seconds before wiping off.
Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheets comes in a Pink Tub with a flip sealer to dispense the individual sheets. It is very convenient to use, just like pulling a tissue off the box. The sealer protects and prevents the moisture of the Facial Sheets from evaporation. When the facial sheets are used up, the refill can be purchases seperately excluding the tub. I like the idea of recyling the tub instead of always having to get a new one everytime its finished.
Let's have some pictures to do the talking:
I decided to illustrate the effectiveness of the Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheets on my eyes instead of my arms as the eyes have contours and curves where its hard to reach in removing makeup.
As instructed, I placed the sheet on my closed eye for 5 seconds before wiping off. See the sheet on the right, the circled area is the outline of my eyeliner and mascara. How cool is that!! Then the rest of my eye makeup, i wipe off gently and the sheet is able to dissolve and pick them up.
Here's my before and after picture of my eye makeup. Notice how clean and bare my eyes are after applying the wipes?
That's how effective the Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheets in removing waterproof and hard-to-remover makeup.The sheets are able to pick up the eyeliner in between my lashes and also the mascara on each lash strands.
I am very impressed by the ability of these sheets. Usually, I will avoid from using wipes as most of them will leave my skin in "pain" from the abrasion they caused will removing stubborn makeups. However with Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheets, it changed my perception. These wipes provide a convenient way of removing makeup, any where even on the go. Its very gentle on my skin and does not leave any stinging or abrasion pain. The wipes are able to strip my face bare in less than one minute. My skin feels very clean and there's no after-feel that sticks to my skin.
If you are interested in purchasing the Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheets, they are selling for S$16.90 and the refill at S$11.50. Both contains 48 sheets that can last about 2 months.
Biore water-based makeup remover (Hydra-Clear)
What it claims:
This rinse off makeup remover contains a highly effective cleansing ingredients. It gently lift away all makeup, even waterproof eye makeup, without rubbing and tugging. The water-based formula does not leave your skin feeling greasy and tight.
Pour an appropriate amount and spread evenly over face and eye area. Massage gently to dissolve and lift away makeup. Rinse throughly with water.
I have been using the Hydra Clear for the past 2 months before I received another from The Sample Store. I always use this in the toilet since it requires rinsing. I will take an appropriate amount as shown in the picture and rub it on my palm before spreading the liquid over my face. I ensure that my face is dry for best results.
Similar as my previous review, I illustrate the effectiveness of the Biore water-based makeup remover with my eye makeup. With the liquid on my palm, I massage over my eye. Instantly, my makeup dissolves my waterproof eyeliner easily. For those areas such as in between my lashes, I will use my fingers to rub them off.
The Hydra Clear may look oily in the bottle but it does not have a greasy feel on my skin. After rinsing off with water, my skin feels clean and light. There are no traces of makeup left on my eye.
A plus point about the Hydra Clear, I don't have to use a cotton pad with each application. For me, this is very convenient and environmentally friendly. I love the Hydra Clear as my all time favourite makeup remover especially for my delicate eyes.
If you are interested in purchasing the Biore water-based makeup remover, it is retailing for S$22.90.
Specially to all my readers, I have a treat for all of you!!
